You two are making me want to keep it and build it to DSP-spec, lol. If any potential DSP'ers didn't read the whole thread it has a fully built trans and t-case with stock gearing (I believe required for *SP) and a Cusco LSD that will be necessary to be competitive in DSP.

Obviously, now's not a great time for selling anything. I'd seriously consider storing this car for as many years as it took to come back into value. As it sits, fried computer and not a runner, only a select few really know what it's potential value is. Fix it, make it run, then keep it pristine for a few years. It's not as if you're really hurting for a couple thou. In time it could bring quite a nice sum.

Okay folks, the car is all together as a running, driving car and JUST PASSED SOMG. I have my office getting the registration current (I'm currently overseas on business) so the car will be officially up for sale as a complete, registered, smogged, drivable car soon!!!!! However, the car is not 100% ready for daily driver or racing duties yet. Here are the outstanding items, I have chosen not to fix these yet to keep the price as low as possible. If it doesn't sell by the time I get home I'll do these as well.

  • Needs Pads/Rotors - The car has sat for years and years now. The rotors are rusted beyond where I'd personally try to save them. You probably could have them cut but I'd just put new ones on myself. Of course, you could also reuse the pads but obviously I'd recommend fresh pads at the same time. I've held off on this one since there are so many options. If you're just going to daily drive it you might want whatever is cheapest. But if you plan to AutoX it on the weekends you might want something more aggressive. FWIW my buddy found all four rotors/pads for ~$250.
  • Needs Tires - They are rock-hard and might be older than some of the members or this board. They will do for a while and have a legal amount of tread but they have no grip. Again, one that I wanted to wait on as an AutoX'er is going to want something different than a commuter. Some buyers might want to put different rims on it anyway. The nice thing is that tirerack has stock sized tires brand new from $236 for all 4.
  • Driveshaft could use a rebuild - Nothing much to say here other than it's good enough for now, but it really should be rebuilt before racing or putting any serious miles on it.


All of the recent work was done by my friend ran the restoration and repair side of Specialty Automotive until the entire place closed (hard times for a boutique car dealership). Off the top of my head, the following have been replaced recently:
  • Cat
  • PCM - "rebuilt" PCM with all new Caps (notorious for failing on these cars) and socketed with a removable/reburnable chip should you decide to mod/tune it!
  • Idle Speed Controller
  • Clutch
  • Rebuilt front Half Shafts
  • Timing Cover
  • Spark Plug Cover
  • A Plethora of Sensors it needed


Basically we replaced anything that we saw that needed it (with the 3 exceptions above) as we went through the car.

Make me an offer! Wink

Like I said, my office is currently working on registering it for me. How much I have to spend there will influence the price some. I will say this, all I'm looking to do is recover some costs here, not make any money. Forgetting about what I paid for the car, and the hundreds and hundreds I've spent at other shops that didn't get the job done here's what I have into it recently:
  • $3,000 - trans/tcase/LSD
  • $250 - PCM
  • $450 - ISC and a bunch of other sensors + labor
  • $250 - Smog + labor to fix vacuum issues THIS WAS NOT A BACK-DOOR WINK WINK ILLEGAL SMOG! THE CAR PASSED SMOG 100% ON THE UP AND UP AND LEGIT. THE EXTRA $ WAS TO REPAIR SOME VACUUM ISSUES THAT WERE CAUSING IT TO NOT PASS. THE CAR PASSES SMOG ENTIRELY ON ITS OWN NOW WITHOUT ANY "HELP."
  • #$$$ - Clutch, half shafts and bunch of previous labor


So, that is around $3950. I'll set the price completed, smogged and registered at $5k which only begins to cover the other "unknown" stuff and still unknown DMV fees, but doesn't even cover what I originally paid for the car. I'm not trying to get rich off this car, nor am I really hurting for the $ but it's a shame for the car to just sit around - especially when it could be such a cool daily driver/DSP rig for somebody and is so rare (especially in this condition).
